The room was a nice size and the location is very good. There kitchen was clean and untidy,people had just left unwashed plates and cups on the side. Our room was the most unpleasant there where stains on the bed linen which made me feel sick and the showers where not very clean.

This hostel is a nice, clean hostel. It has pretty comfortable rooms that are quite small. The kitchen is clean and big. You get limited free WiFi. However, I felt like I was a burden to the owners there who wanted everyone to leave as soon as they had checked out. I've never experienced that in a hostel before. Usually...

We had our three day circling along the northern west coast of the south island and we reached the very beautiful town and just passed by the hostel. After some research we found it suitable for us. The hospitality of the owners was great to have and we decided to stay an extra two days there.

Not just another backpack, the oldest building of the town. The "cachet" of the place is fantastic. Great eating room with a old fashioned coal fire a piano and lot of place for everyone. The kitchen is brand new and well equipped

Very clean, cosy and comfortable rooms. The kitchen is massive and the interior is great in the common area. The owners are very friendly and they've got friendly pets walking around in the backyard. It's a great place in lovely Westport and definitely recommend.

Our first destination in the South Island was the little town of Westport. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we were shown to our bedroom which included a little bathroom. Beautiful windows allowed lots of sunlight into the room. The bed was so comfortable and warm it provided the most amazing night sleep after a very long day...

Plentyful parking just outside the hostel, we stayed in the tiny pink caravan. Travelling as a couple we usually just stay in dorms to save the odd buck here and there but after seeing the caravan on booking.com we just had to stay here. It was small but we managed to fit in all of our luggage and even had...
